For years Germany has been a wasteland for wireless networks thanks to draconian rules for network operators. Businesses are now free of liability for illegal downloaders using their network, but not everyone is happy.
It is nearly impossible to find wi-fi in Germany. So, in an answer to everyone's prayers, Germany's Protestant Church has spread the good news: free internet hotspots. Or rather, "Godspots."
Germany's ruling coalition has agreed on modified legislation aimed at removing existing legal risks associated with providing free Wi-Fi to the public. The law is expected to come into force this summer.
